Travelling alone, on a Tuesday night, middle of winter, stayed in a Queen room. It's not luxurious, but for this price, probably the nicest place I've stayed - tidy, well-presented rooms (not those tacky colour-patterned bed covers that every other motel seems to have). Large mirror, a table to work on, free wifi. Best of all, the woman at reception... More

A great place to stay, if you need a bed and shower. No fancy services. It's an old motel, but such a easy place to get too. 10 minutes walk to Salamanca Market or Hobart town. You also have Sandy bay shops, just 5 minutes walk with great restaurants .Red Decker bus picks up or drops off just on the... More

The location of this hotel is exceptional for it's proximity to Sandy Bay shops, Salamanca and the city. The staff are helpful and checkin was very easy, however the rooms are very dated. I stayed in a twin share room (queen bed and single bed), the bed itself was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was missing tiles in the shower,... More

Nice size room. Short walking distance to Salamanca. Great view from Balcony of Hobart Harbour and Wrest Point Casino. Has on site Laundry. Only down side is parking is limited to first in best served. So would be hard when fully booked. Very happy and would stay here again

We had the room/apartment with the best view and undercover parking though you do have to climb 4 flights to get there. It did have a great bed and clean sheets/towels etc. For the price and location it was OK as long as you know what you are going into. If anything needed fixing or replacing it was done. As... More

We were given a room with the best view and I have to say that was the best part about this place - the view and location. It was cold, wet and horrible weather when we arrived and we had to carry our luggage up 4 flights of wet slippery stairs to the top. The facilities were very basic and... More

Could do with a major revamp as it is in a great location but old, dirty and dated, carpet filthy and curling up at the edges. Clean towels and sheets but think its a bit cheeky to say if you don't wash your dishes you will be charged a $20 cleaning fee. Limited parking, first in first served. Have stayed... More
